Show 511, February 4, 2023: Chef George Geary, Food Historian. His latest title is L.A.’s Landmark Restaurants Part Two

Cookbook Author George Geary

L.A.’s Landmark Restaurants: Celebrating the Legendary Locations Where Angelenos Have Dined for Generations follows in the footsteps of chef, baker and food historian George Geary’s now classic and critically acclaimed book, L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants.

“L.A.’s Landmark Restaurants is an illustrated history of over 50 famous Los Angeles restaurants from throughout the 20th century that were not featured in Geary’s first book. The focus in L.A.’s Landmark Restaurants is on restaurants where Angelenos—rather than celebrities—have been dining for generations.”

“Along with recipes made famous by each restaurant, L.A.’s Landmark Restaurants contains profiles of such legendary eateries as Cole’s, Philippe the Original, Pacific Dining Car, The Original Pantry Café, The Victor Hugo, Canter’s Delicatessen, Sportsmen’s Lodge, Mocambo, Nate ’n Al’s, The Smoke House, Tail o’ the Pup, The Apple Pan, Valentino, and dozens of other beloved establishments in this beautiful tribute to Los Angeles and its historic restaurants. Truly a love letter to Los Angeles and its world famous cuisine, L.A.’s Landmark Restaurants is sure to bring back treasured memories and knowing smiles from anyone who has dined at these fabled establishments.”

George’s next title for publication in 2024 is a follow-up tome to his previous Made In California: The California-Born Diners, Burger Joints, Restaurants & Fast Food that Changed America.

Chef George Geary continues with us with a Green Corn Tamale in hand from El Cholo (celebrating their 100th Anniversary this year.)
